Here's something I've been wondering for a while; why do we love videogames? They have no practical purpose, they eat up free time with no real benefits to speak of, and they are incredibly addictive. From a non-gamer perspective, playing videogames is a complete waste of time.

I know all this, and yet I just LOVE to play! I could just sit on my butt and play Skyrim for hours if I didn't feel so guilty about all the time I'm flushing down the drain. So many hours and so much manpower has been put into the entertainment industry, so there's obviously a demand. Do we do it to escape reality? Do we do it because we like to feel like we can accomplish something more than we ever could in real life?

For me, my excuse is that I'm doing a character exercise. And I'm not entirely lying about it; every character I create, in Skyrim, and even the Sims, occasionally, gets written down with details of their personality, background, where they live and other things. I'm creating characters that I could potentially use in later stories, and by playing them in the game, I expand on their personalities by how they react to different situations.
But I'm what some people call an 'Immersion player', in that I get completely involved in the world and don't like to break the illusion. Apparently, there aren't too many immersion players like me; there are some people who are perfectly happy to just screw around in the game, kill stuff and run around.

Even though I have a reason, I still don't know why I spend so much time playing. To any gamers reading this (and even if you play just one game, it applies,) I want to know why YOU play videogames. :D

I :+fav: and :sprint:

:peace: :heart: :earth: :iconllapplz:

My name is Miluiel, I’m Canadian (and proud of it!) and I love to write and draw fantasy. :D

I am a geek in ALMOST every way you can imagine, though my sphere of nerdliness is always re-shaping and expanding: I absolutely love Lord of the Rings, X Men, Spiderman, Avatar, Harry Potter, CSI, Criminal minds, Star Trek, Supernatural, Heroes, the list goes on.

My favorite authors are Terry Brooks, Alison Croggon and Megan Whalen Turner, among others. :heart: I love every kind of music from Celtic to Rock, and I’m always listening to music.

I plan to be a writer. Though I suspect I’ll just be living like a hermit in the basement, holed up with my laptop, I KNOW this is what I want to do. I’ve written a bunch of little snippets, but I’m still trying to convince myself to work on something bigger, or better yet; send my stuff away! :faint:

If you wish, please take time to read my writing; I’m always up for tips on how I can improve. I also love hearing from my brilliant fellow artists out there! :wave:

If you like what you see, I am up for requests! Please send me a note asking what you want, because I do have rules. :police:

And I love emotes. :tighthug: :poke: :turbopoke: :iconpounceglomp: :dummy: :icondamglingcursorplz: :iconiloveyouplz: :heart: :iconloveyouplz: :tunes: :love: :huggle: :happycry: :floating: :library: :ninja: :meditation: :iconglompage: :iconbackhug: :iconglompbutt: :iconmeltplz: :iconspazhugplz: :icongwompplz:
